Smile Vintage Singer Sewer

Hello everyone! I am an avid collector of vintage singer machines - the older series from the 1950's and 1960's. My favorite is the Singer Touch n Sew 600 series. I have now the Singer Stylist 477 and recently purchased a 15-99 201. I love these machines and feel that sewing on these older machines is truly an art form. Hope you are all well and staying safe and healthy and sewing your hearts out!

Welcome aboard, Sutton. I'm waving from a safe personal space away near Seattle.

We have a lot of vintage fans around here, my 301 is currently next door with the neighbors making masks for their extended family. My own modern (Bernina) and favorite vintage (Remington) machines are both in the shop right now and I'm using an bottom of the line Brother because working beats non-working, but I'm missing my steady solid metal vintage beauty.

Waving hello from Maryland. I don't collect machines but I love looking at them and reading about them.

Welcome to the QB and happy quilting

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

I'm glad you have good experience with the series. Some are not so fortunate. I did get some early models. I haven't messed with the 603s but I did get the 626 going with the chain stitch.

I'm confused - Are you saying you have three machines? A 15, a 99 and a 201?

We like pictures. You will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf

Welcome to the quilting board from Southern Indiana! I have a Singer 201 that I bought when my first child was five....(my first sewing machine!!!) Right now it's in rough shape because I let my stepdaughter use it for a while and she used it for canvass boat covers and failed to oil it. Am going to send it to the 'sewing machine hospital' after the virus scare is past...and hopefully it will be back in service. Can't wait!

Welcome to the QB from SE Michigan! I am glad to see you jumping right in with your love of vintage machines. I have a number of vintage machines and I love all of them. Of course I also have a few older than vintage machines. I try to take each one out of retirement from time to time. I had a Singer Touch & Sew 600 once and gave it to someone needing a sewing machine. It was a nice machine. Machines come and go in my house all the time. I will pick them up at garage sales in the summer and play with them. Many I have kept and many have been given away. I don't think I have sold a single one of them.
Please enjoy yourself here. There are a whole lot of vintage lovers here. Again welcome to the QB!

Welcome from Maine. I purchased my first vintage singer, a 15/91 this past summer. I have played around with it some, but no complete projects yet. Glad you found this forum, looking forward to seeing some of your projects.
